  • ArtiosCAD 12.1 will still install on Windows the OSs but there will be no maintenance provided for these OS.
  • The default database is now SQL Server Express 2012, which will not install on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, so for new installations, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 should not be the platforms of choice for server or standalone machines.
